“Tapping into the Roots of Sugar”
By: Lauren Ross
On Saturday April 15 2017 at 9:00am our President Ian Lawton called the meeting to order with the 4-H pledge. Next Ian opened the floor for our club name nominations. The club decided on the name “Tapping into the Roots of Sugar”. Then Rob explained how sugarbeets are processed into sugar. Maureen read an article from The Voice of the Kent Farmer April 4, 1995 that recalled the 4-H movement in Kent County came to life in 1930, with the introduction of the “Better Sugar Beet Club”. The 1930 sugar beet club in Chatham Kent was for boys to learn how to grow better sugar beets. Then sugar beet meeting was adjourned at 10:35am with a social time among the sugar beet participants.
